The late great Henry cooper "our Henry"
Born in Lambeth London in May 1934 with a twin brother George(also a boxer) and having an elder brother Bern.
Henry fought in the 1952 Helsinki Olympics and after turning professional fought famous fighters such as Floyd Patterson, Brian London, Muhammad Ali, and Joe bugner.
Cooper was left handed but instead of fighting as a southpaw opted for the orthodox stance presenting significant problems for his opponents including the great Muhammed Ali with fights in 1963 and 1966, Cooper cought Ali with a peach of a left hook known as "enrys ammer" sending him to the canvas.
Cooper at one time held the British, European and commonwealth titles with a professional record of 40 wins 14 losses and one draw with 25 knockouts he was a tough fighter that could have quite easily been world champion.
Henry cooper died aged 76 in May 2011in Surrey England leaving behind a lasting legacy. #henrycooper#britishboxing#heavyweight #fightingmen#fightnight#ourHenry#boxing#boxingfan#nobleart#sweetscience#lefthook#coopervali#alivcooper#heavyweightchampionship

Swipe for Part II. Thomas Hearns lands a hard left hook in round one, his first meaningful shot of the fight and then knocks out his opponent in round 2 with the same shot.
Notice the build up, after the hook to the head Hearns switches to targeting the body with the left hand.
In the next round Hearns switches his opponent off by not even using the hook and barely even attempts a power shot for the first half of round two switching his opponent off before changing tempo and going for the knockout, targeting the body again with the left hook. Hearns knocks out his opponent by slipping in the hook to the head by starting out with the left hook held low leaving his opponent in a state of indecision as to where the hook is going to land. With the right hand in no mans land it creates a window of opportunity for Hearns to capitalize. #thomashearns#hitmanhearns#lefthook#knockout#fayzboxing#boxingcoach#boxinganalyst#boxinganalysis#sweetscience#ringiq#fightiq#combatsports#mma#oss#muaythai#ufc#watfordboxingclub

Couple things I’ve learned during my 13 years of working out.
💪 1) Working out is a skill and it should be practiced like such. I’m personally not a fan of “confusing the body” with a buffet workout style. I need to get my reps in to get more skilled at my core steak and potato workouts.
💪 2) 80/20 Rule: You only need a few steak and potato exercises. Coming from a bodybuilding background, I was conditioned to perform a bazillion different exercises ... just not my cup of tea. In reality only 20% (compound) truly drove significant results.
💪 3) Quality or Quantity: More isn’t always better. If every workout/set was focused on proper mechanics rather than mediocre high reps, the body will respond much more effectively with (gains/fatloss).
💪 4) Working out is a not a race. There will be someone who is more skilled than me, stronger than me, more experienced than me, and the list goes on and on. Enjoy the journey because working out is an absolute expression of self love.
Stay healthy. Stay strong!

Who here is craving some sweet snacks? 💁♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Post by @keto.miracle
As you all know- I have the biggest sweet tooth cravings always and find that my snacks help carry me through 💃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. 💛Choc covered cherries :we have 80g cherries half dipped in one square Lindt ( melted). Coming in at around 90 cals.
2. 💙Raspberries dipped in yoghurt : I take 150g raspberries and dip it in 20g low fat plain yoghurt. I then freeze this and enjoy! Coming in at 93 cals!
3. ❤️ Yoghurt blueberries: I like to dip blueberries (100g) into yoghurt(100g)( i sweeten mine with stevia and vanilla) and then freeze them in the freezer. So incredibly satisfying at 82 calories and satisfies me the same as ice cream would
4. 💛Spicy pineapple fingers: best enjoyed on hot days, this gives your pineapple a kick! I slice 100g pineapple into long fingers, and then sprinkle some chilli powder/cayenne pepper ontop with a pinch of salt! At only 50 calories, i often have seconds ;)
5. 🧡Chocolate popcorn: My favourite post dinner snack! I like to airpop popcorn kernels in the microwave (makes around 2 cups), and either melt 48g dark chocolate or throw in some dark chocolate chips for that sweet-salty combo. The entire bowl usually comes to around 98 calories, depending on the type of chocolate you use
6. 💜Choc chip zucchini muffin: these are so delicious and easy to make! At 83 cals these are a winner! #sweetscience#calorieburn#fatlosstips#nutritions#healthyfoodinspo

What the most important aspect of your BOXING STANCE? .
When you’re starting out in boxing, it can difficult to know which stance you should use, what makes it right for you and how to know if it’s working.
Often beginners will choose a stance without much thought, let that stance become habit THEN realize it isn’t the most effective stance for them! Then time must be taken to unlearn and relearn a stance that will bring them the most success with their boxing.
To help beginning boxers combat this problem Punch Therapy has created a course called The Foundations of Boxing.
The Foundations of Boxing covers the basics that I use to train my fighters and clients including your stance, the jab, cross and hook, defence and footwork.
These fundamentals will set you up for a great workout, maximize your power, save you from injury, and provide you with the fundamentals and confidence you need to move forward with boxing!
You don’t need a lot of space, or even equipment if you don’t have any, you just need the desire to learn and improve!
When I was first starting out in boxing, I had so many questions about how to stand, what my hands should be doing, how to move properly. I created The Foundations of Boxing to answer those questions and, even more, provide instruction through VIDEO and TEXT so you can revisit the information in different ways, play it in your headphones while you watch yourself in the mirror, look at the small changes I make in my movements that make a huge difference, or reread it while you’re laying in bed.
When and where can you get access to The Foundations of Boxing?
MONDAY, JUNE 1 🗓
Until then, here is a taste of what you’ll get from Punch Therapy’s The Foundations of Boxing 🥊
